Did you know 60% of America's inmates are illiterate and 85% of all juvenile offenders have reading difficulties? In Fresno County, incarcerated youth and those in continuation schools are typically four to five grade levels behind. We need your help with a new crime-fighting initiative to improve literacy in Fresno County, which can result in reducing crime.

We invite you to become involved by making a donation for the Sheriff's Office to distribute these books. Suggested reading material is for K-4th grades and examples can be found at
